When asked what his favorite healthy meal was, Burn 60 Trainer David Petruzzi was quick to reply, "Turkey chili! I found this recipe off of the Food Network. I wish I could say it was my own, but it's the one I use and it's delicious."

Needless to say we immediately tracked down the recipe and decided to post it for your viewing (and eating!) pleasure.

The ingredients below are just the basics, so feel free to adjust to your taste. Not a fan of yellow bell peppers? Try adding yellow corn instead. Want to make it more kid friendly? Omit the chili powder and hot sauce and substitute with a bit brown sugar and worcestershire. Seriously, make it your own and enjoy it (like David) to the last bite!

What You'll Need:

1 T olive oil

1 c. chopped sweet onions

1 T minced garlic

1/4 c. chopped yellow bell peppers

1 lb. ground turkey

1 (28 oz) can crushed organic tomatoes, undrained

1 (16 oz) can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed

1 T chili powder

1 T sugar

2 c. low-sodium chicken stock

1/2 t garlic powder

1 t hot sauce (we prefer Tabasco)

1 1/2 t sea salt

How to Make It Happen:

In a large skillet, sauté onions, garlic and bell peppers in olive oil over medium heat until onions are translucent. Add ground turkey and cook until browned.

Add remaining ingredients and stir well to combine. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.*
